Hackett’s Stinger Glances Off Dragons Scales


Monday night saw a bevy of many talented basketball matches. One of those games consisted of the Hackett Jr High Hornets hosting the Mountainburg Dragons. The Hornets and the Dragons always have much to offer when they step out onto the court. And in true fashion, last night didn’t disappoint. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner and at the sound of the final buzzer, it was the Hornets that took the “L” 30-25. With nine games under their belt, Hackett now sits with a 3-6 season record.

While taking on the Dragons, Cole Ketchum made sure Mountainburg knew his name as he meticulously danced circles around the Dragons putting up 12 points for the Hornets. Also laying claim to bucket paradise was Eli Slavens as he netted 6 points. Josh Atchley, Seth Crone, and Dawson Clay lit up the board with two points apiece. And Gabe Hice put his name on one point.

Not yet done putting the finishing touches on, Coach Kent Elmore had this to say about his Hornets. “They are coming along nicely. I start four eighth-graders and they have really started to understand the concepts we are trying to teach. We still have to step up on our defensive intensity though. We are giving up too many offensive rebounds. We are a small team and we have everyone bought in, in order to be a good rebounding team!” The Jr Hornets will play again on Friday, December 20 at home against the Lavaca Golden Arrows starting at 5 p.m.
